Since skipping breakfast was one of the reasons I was putting weight back on (picture me 10 a.m and a box of Pot Tarts calling to me in the work breakroom) I'm making it a point to eat each morning.
I probably won't be posting photos of lunches in the lunchroom at work ("Who is that weird woman taking closeups of a tuna sandwich?") But I will do so when I eat out or just drive my truck to someplace with trees and sit and eat.
Today, I split a Panera Napa chicken salad sandwich (690 calories for a single sandwich!) with a friend I met for lunch and had the apple that was the side.
But I have to ask Panera - seriously, outside of Captain Carb who orders a Baguette as a sie to their sandwich?
My afternoon snack was a few almonds (about 1/3 cup)
Work was going to go later than expected I was sure, so I packed a Bento Box before I went to sleep, just in case.
Fruit, cucumbers from a friend's garden splashed with a little rice vinegar, dark chocolate sugar-free pudding, salad and some Gardein crispy "chicken" strips. A light, cold supper I could eat at my desk. Yummy and SO much better than bringing back another restaurant sandwich to eat.
Total for the day: Breakfast 360. Lunch (splitting a sandwich) 425 Snack 170 Dinner 400 for a bit more than 1350 ish for the day.
The glass of wine I had when I got home doesn't count. Because I drank it standing up.
OK 1500 calories for the day.
Exercise? Let's just say it's hard on 10-14 hour work days.
